SUN SOLARIS 10 Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production

Could someone help me please.

We are starting to use RMAN.

We have a test database running in noarchivelog mode.

We took a consistent backup (mount) on Feb 5 20:55
(backup as compressed backupset database include current controlfile),
and another consistent backup on Feb 6 11:05.

There was some database activity since then.

This morning, Feb 9, we restored database:
(restore database).

When we tried to open database, we get:

RMAN> alter database open;




RMAN-03002: failure of alter db command at 02/09/2009 10:32:06 ORA-01113: file 1 needs media recovery
ORA-01110: data file 1: '/u08/oradata/tst/system01.dbf'

We thought that you could open a consistent backup, without recovery.

Is that incorrect ?
Is there any way to do that ?

Thank you. Received on Mon Feb 09 2009 - 09:53:41 CST
